If there’s anything we love more than theatre it’s celebrating theatre, so while half of the Boom team stayed in to watch (and savour, screen-cap, and sigh over) The Oscars, the other half of our team was thrilled to attend Theatre Calgary‘s annual fundraiser and Academy Awards party, Night with the Stars.
This year’s event featured a playful and on-point Star Wars theme, complete with glittering decor reminiscent of far-off galaxies, and jaunty storm troopers greeting guests on a red carpet. Over 500 glamorously outfitted Calgarians gathered to enjoy the company of other cinematic addicts, all while the Oscars were broadcasted live for the attendees viewing pleasure.
Highlights of the evening included (but were certainly not limited to): ‘paparazzi’ on the red carpet, complete with flashing bulbs and shouts of, “Who are you wearing?”; a wildly popular photo booth, and (our personal favourite) a Smashbox touch-up station manned by professional make up artists.
The evening was an artistic and fundraising success, with the impressive live and silent auctions raising over $126,00.00 in support of Theatre Calgary. Boom was pleased to attend this event, and looks forward to doing so in the upcoming years. To see how you can support Theatre Calgary, click Here.
